Xin Tian Di will be something like Lan Kwai Fong in Hong Kong and Clarke Quay in Singapore. It is is situated at Lane No.181 of Taicang Road Shanghai, the old Shikumen residential area near "Zhonggong yidahuizhi" ( site of the 1st National Congress of the Communist Party). It occupies an area of about 30,000 square meters. It was a former old Shikumen which has been given restoration. Now it is a good blend between the modern and new buildings around and the old area, hence Shikumen Xintiandi. The past and the present and the East and West makes Xintiandi very charmful, making it into the most ideal site for visitors home and abroad to have a good view of the history, culture, and modern lifestyle of Shanghai.
The Shikumen buildings' exterior, such as the buick walls, roofs, and doors' supporter, are well preserved and contribute to the unique and trendy walking areas. At the sides, open-air cafes are the spots to see and be seen in Shanghai. Before the development of Xintiandi, the area had been a spread of aged lanes crowded with mid-19th century Shikumen buildings which were in pretty bad shape. Restored to their original splendor, the buildings and walkways allows visitors to Xintiandi to simply stroll around and take in the sights, eat at a number of world-class retsuarants, or shop in the brand-name glass-walled shopping mall at one end of the complex.
